CelebrateDecember2014Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today Jennifer Kinkade is with us sharing a beautiful layout!

happy little trees_1Jen shares, “I was immediately drawn to the Star of Wonder patterned paper, side B. I loved the natural look of the wood and thought it would be the perfect background for my photo. I started by adding some scrapes of white acrylic paint to ground my photo and embellishments. I also used a triangle stencil with my paint to add a graphic, directional element. Keeping with the wood and tree theme, I used lots of wooden embellishments.

happy little trees_2I built my photo and embellishments around my painted area, intentionally using tags and elements that conveyed the happy, merry feeling I had about my new favorite Christmas decorations.

Supplies used: Holiday Tag Cut Files, Good Cheer 12 x 12 paperGood cheer bits and pieces, Christmas ephemera pack, Elle’s Studio November 2014 kit.


Today we are giving away the November Exclusive Kit and the December Exclusive Kit!  For your chance to win, please leave a comment on this post!
